Movie, a common noun in American English, refers to the work of a filmmaker.
Pixar is the parent company of the studio, which is known for its hit films like Finding Nemo and Finding Dory.
In an article on the Pixar website, a writer at The Verge said the company would probably be headed by former Disney animator and Pixar founder John Lasseter.
“We don’t know the details, but it’s highly likely that Pixar will be headed into 2017 by John Lattner,” he wrote.
“John Lattners passion for the medium of animation, and the sheer amount of Pixar films he has been involved with, will be a huge influence on his new direction.”
The Verge wrote that Latters passion for animation was well-known, but that Pixar has been trying to get its foot in the door of film-making for years.
“Lattner’s passion for films is so strong that he created a film-production company called DreamWorks Animation, which produced several Pixar films, including Finding Dories,” the article said.
“But he’s also made a career out of writing Pixar stories, and Pixar fans are already excited to see what John Littons next project might be.”
The article noted that Litters filmography includes work on animated films like Cars, Finding Nemuels and Toy Story, and that he also wrote the scripts for Toy Story 2 and Monsters University.
“It would be interesting to see if Pixar would pick up a Pixar director, as well as a Pixar scriptwriter, for the future,” the Verge wrote.
